I've cross-posted a couple of articles on Hackernoon, just to see the idea of the platform and how it works.
I got concerned about the following reasons:
- No API to automate the process;
- Entirely different editor (compared to ones you see in DEV and Hashnode), that needs a lot of manual tweaking;
- I find the platform to be slow, takes around 5 secs to log in and another 5 secs to start writing (on a good connection);
- After submitting you go through up to 2 weeks waiting time, during which the editors of the site manually edit your article before publishing.
On the other hand, the platform still holds quite an amount of readers, and the articles got well distributed by their social media strategy.
Thus the discussion, do you think it is still worth cross-posting your content on Hackernoon in 2021?
